I have been on Depo-provera for nearly two months now, and have been on several other birth controls to try and regulate my period. None of the pills ever worked, I continued to bleed irregularly with heavy blood flow, and periods lasting up to 8 weeks. My doctor and I tried LUPRON to stop my periods, and it worked well for about six months. Due to insurance refusing to pay, I switched to Depo-Provera. I started bleeding two weeks ago, with all the sypmtoms of a regular period. Cramping, heartburn, mood swings, sleeplessness, sweating.
Is it possible since birthcontrol never regulated my period that Depo is not working also. Is it a possibility that I could still become pregnant on Depo if I am bleeding?
I recently became sexually active for my first time 4 moths ago, so I never used birth control for the purpose of preventing pregnancy. Now I'm concerned that it is not going to work to prevent pregnancy if it has never worked to control my irregular periods. HELP!
